We have some exciting news to share with everyone. After multiple conversations, deliberations, and thoughts…my husband, Nick, has decided to take a new job. A new job offer that would not only change our lives for the better, but will create a new space to explore together. A place we have both never been before where we can forge new memories and create a new home. With that all being said, lol, Nick has taken a job offer with the U.S. Forest Service! I couldn’t be happier for him to have a job that he loves, exploring the mountains, and protecting our lands natural resources. (little tear) I couldn’t be prouder.


So I’m sure you are wondering where exactly we are moving to. The good news is nothing is going to change business wise. I am still coming to Palm Springs and Southern California to do my weddings and lifestyle sessions. Which I am super grateful for.  Nick and I are moving to Las Vegas, Nevada. Viva Las Vegas baby! So if anyone is going to be in the area, we would love to host you, stay with us, go see shows, go to the famous strip. Send me a e-mail, text, or heck, even call me and let’s get together.


That’s right! I’ve spend the last four years, building my photography business from scratch. No trust fund, no network connections, just a dream, a passion, and the perseverance to reach my goals. When I set my mind to something, nothing is going to stop me until I reach that goal, whatever it may be. Like getting the house cleaned, putting myself out there and meeting with new vendors, planning out my social media (the struggle is real, am I right?).
Spending 10-12 hour days in the office, hustling to try to make my dream a full-time reality. My husband has sacrificed a lot for me to pursue my dream, date nights, vacations, visiting family, you name it! It is now time for me to focus on my husbands dreams so that we can both live a life with passion, integrity, and doing what we love, everyday.


Okay so I have been getting a lot of messages over the past few days, “where did you go, why did you move, etc.” Well now you all know. Nick and I have moved to Las Vegas so that he can pursue his dream job of Conservation Law Enforcement. Sounds like a big title, but basically means roaming the mountains and protecting the natural resources (we have left anyway!).

To all of my current and future clients, do not worry. I am literally driving back and forth between Las Vegas and Southern California almost on a weekly basis. The long desert drive may get tiring, but being able to serve my clients does not. I will drive 4+ hours to capture your life’s special moments, I will hop on a plane, get a hotel and rental car, whatever it takes! I want to share that special day with you!

I wanted to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that has been supporting me through this transition phase. I couldn’t live my dream without each and every one of you supporting me emotionally, online, through workout sessions, etc.
I know it will be for the best in the long run for me and my family. I am not going anywhere I am just merely expanding my reach. lol.

So with all that being said, come to Las Vegas, come visit me, or if not me, a free place to crash and enjoy what the city has to offer.
